80 Original Female Irish Setter Names

The Irish Setter is a breed of gundog that is also a well loved family dog. The AKC recognizes the heavier set, show-bred dog as the Irish Setter, while the Field Dog Stud Book recognizes the lighter, more agile dog under the name Red Setter.  These happy-go-lucky dogs are highly intelligent and high in drive. Affectionate with family, they also greet strangers enthusiastically; with that in mind, they do not make good guard dogs.

These unique names for female Irish Setters exalt their Irish gundog heritage, rolicking personalities and radiant, red coats.

Names for Female Dogs with Red Coats


Today, the Irish Setter is distinguished for is lustrous, deep red coat in either auburn or chestnut shades. Originally bred from a mix of the Gordon Setter, English Setter, Irish Water Spaniel and Irish Terrier, the early coat of the Irish Setter was red and white. By the late 1800's the deep red color began to be preferred by breeders and dog show judges, and the Irish Setter's coat became predominantly red. The current AKC breed standard allows for some hints of white on the toes and  the chest of the dog, however any black hairs in the coat are to be faulted according to degree. 

Also known as the Irish Red Setter, these Irish Setter names celebrate the warm red coat of the breed. Many of these names evoke images of deep red clay such as is found in Georgia and Sedona, or rich, exotic spices such as those of Morocco.

Shannon was the name of both Henry Gross and Carl Wilson, of the Beach Boys, Irish Setters.   One afternoon, Henry Gross visited Carl Wilson in Beverly Hills, when the subject of Gross' pet dog named Shannon came up. Wilson was visibly moved, stating that he had owned an Irish Setter named Shannon who had recently been hit by a car.  Some months later, back in New York City, sitting on the bed with his acoustic guitar and Shannon, Gross channeled the Beach Boys-esque song, Shannon. The song went to number 2 on the US Charts.
